Rodong Sinmun Riles Moves of US and Japan to Tighten Military Alliance
| Pyongyang, September 28 (KCNA) -- Tension remains high on the Korean Peninsula and the situation has not been improved in the Asia-Pacific region entirely because the U.S. and Japanese reactionaries are keen to tighten their political and military nexus, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in a bylined article.
The article goes on:
The U.S. president said at a recent press conference that "the U.S.-Japan alliance is a cornerstone for ensuring peace and security in the Asia-Pacific region." The U.S. secretary of Defense blustered "the U.S.-Japan alliance has been a foundation of peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region for decades." Timed to coincide with these outbursts, the Japanese authorities including the prime minister cried out for steadily preserving the U.S.-Japan "security pact" for "stability" in the region.
Lurking behind their reckless remarks are black-hearted intentions of the U.S. and Japan to contain and stamp out the progressive forces in the region and realize their scenarios for hegemony and reinvasion.
The tightened alliance between the U.S. and Japan means beefing up their aggressor forces.
The U.S. is busy amassing huge forces in its strongholds of military and strategic importance and major areas rich in resources under the signboard of "stability" and the like.
The U.S-Japan "security pact" is aimed at perpetrating aggression and war against other countries.
The "pact" is a factor of increasing the danger of a war in the Asia-Pacific region and threatening peace and security there. Its main spearhead is directed to the Korean Peninsula.
The U.S. and Japanese reactionaries consider it as their primary task for carrying out their Asia-Pacific strategy to keep south Korea as a nuclear outpost and contain the DPRK by using it as a springboard. Hence, they are beefing up the U.S. forces in south Korea and reducing it into a hotbed of a war.
Peace and security can never settle in the Asia-Pacific region as long as the U.S. and Japanese reactionaries persist in their criminal moves, concludes the article.
